The fractional chirp scaling algorithm (FrCSA) is based on the use of the fractional Fourier transform (FrFT) within the chirp scaling algorithm (CSA). In this paper, a closed-form expression for the azimuth FrFT of the FrCSA is mathematically derived and analyzed from the high-resolution synthetic aperture radar imaging point of view. The azimuth-FrFT expression of the FrCSA is compared to that of the classical fast Fourier transform (FFT)-based CSA. As the FFT is a special case of the generalized FrFT, the derived expression is found to be in total agreement with that of the FFT-based CSA when the transformation order is equal to unity; that is the angle of rotation is equal to Π/2.
